What is Molly and it’s Effects?

Molly, short for “Molecule”, is considered and sold as pure MDMA, the drug found in ecstasy. However, recent DEA tests show that the drug often contains methamphetamine, speed, and countless other chemicals.

Like other street drugs, Molly is “homemade”, often in basements, garages, RV’s and even storage units. Being homemade means that no standards are in place for makers and dealers. This makes Molly a very dangerous gamble. At an electric music festival in NY last week, 2 concert goers died from complications from their Molly dose.

The Molly drug originated in the underground rave and dance world, and eventually made its way into the more mainstream club scene of teenagers and college students.

Unlike many other street drugs, Molly has received “safe” or “clean” reputation from recent and current pop culture references. In the past few months, Molly has been mentioned in the T.I. song “Ball”, the new Miley Cyrus song We Can’t Stop, and even by Madonna at live performance in Miami.

This casual mainstreaming of the Molly drug leads young, impressionable users to think the drug is not only safe and acceptable, but cool and desirable.
